Is It A Coincidence Or? Netizens Notice This On Daily Nation's Cover Image

Today's Daily Nation's front Page had a Photo of the fallen Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli. The headline read, "Kwaheri Magufuli" (Bye Magufuli). This is after the news of his death was announced by the Vice president Samia Suluhu on Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation (TBC).

What caught the eyes of Kenyans online was the advertisement that was put below Magufuli's portrait.

The advertisement was for Johnnie Walker and the slogan read "Perfect swing, Perfect sip". Magufuli's second name is Pombe which means alcohol in English language. This could be loosely translated as Pombe is a perfect swing and a perfect sip.

The advertisement has been running on the front page of the Daily Nation but it has never been such coincidental than today.

President Magufuli died while receiving medication in Tanzania due to heart complications. He has been missing from the public since February 27. When the public asked his whereabouts, government officials threatened to take stun actions on those speculating. Some citizens have been arrested on the same.

Below are some of the screenshots from Kenyans on social media.
